A vegan café has reportedly been attacked by a sausage-wielding group in Georgia described as "fascists".

The group entered the Kiwi Café in Tbilisi during a film screening and began acting "loudly and disturbingly", according to a post on the café's Facebook page.

The group, described as "neo-Nazis", then allegedly pulled out grilled meat, sausages and fish and began eating them and throwing them at those inside.

They were eventually forced out of the café by those inside after the police were called.

Vegans do not eat meat, fish or poultry and do not use other animal products and by-products.

The Facebook post said: "Yesterday in Kiwi, during the movie screening, a group of people who prepared an anti-vegan provocative action, entered and started to be violent.

"It all started when they came into the cafe speaking and laughing loudly and didn't care when we asked them to be quiet and not to disturb the people who came to watch the film.

"Continuing to act loudly and disturbingly, they pulled out some grilled meat, sausages, fish and started eating them and throwing them at us, and finally they started to smoke.

"Knowing that all of the above is forbidden here, they were just trying to provoke our friends and disrespect us."

It went on to say they started to "push these people out" and that there were violent scenes in the street before the police were called.

The post also claimed neighbours of the café were hostile towards them and that the police were "very aggressive" and "said that we are guilty of what had happened".
